For a change from the usual toasted tomato appetizer, try these baked bites. If you like, slice the baguette at an angle instead of making a straight cut. —Leondre Hermann, Stuart, Florida

"These are great right out of the oven. I have made them twice as written, but might reduce the mayo in the future. I can definitely detect the mayo flavor and would prefer a cheesier taste. Can easily swap out the cheese, maybe try a light Swiss or a blend of Monterey Jack and Swiss? This recipe goes into my "favorite" folder for a change of pace."

"I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but I have the hardest time moving from recipe to recipe and maneuvering my recipe box. I can't seem to find an easy way except to leave the site and return. So very irritating. Any advice."
